Often when shooting a sunrise, walkers or joggers

will stop ten yards away while I am

simply setting up my tripod.

Then there are times when my cloak

of invisibility works like magic.   🙂

Early morning at Corio Bay

Not that I wait around too long,

but I have never seen fishermen’s nets

at breaking point.

Just many trying.

Another first and only time, to date,

that I have seen tug  boats ‘park’

their clients so efficiently.

 

 

Whether colour or black and white is your cup of tea...

 

 

…these trees still make interesting additions to the sunset.

 

A grain field at dusk.

I~~~~~

Many of my sunset photos are merely silhouettes.

Whether they are….

Black and White…

or colour…

 

I think they look good.

Even Geelong’s waterfront…

looks good to me.

However, I do prefer…

 

rural landscapes…

over cityscapes.

 

Often there are more interesting or

unusual subjects to photograph.

 

And the expanse of nature is inspiring.

 

Finally, three…

versions of  the same…

 

 silhouette.

sunset3_0720aThis last shot contains a leopard which was, naturally, the reason for stopping,

going out of our way and shooting so many photos.

It’s a bit like a Where’s Wally book…easy when you know where to look.

On August 5, I paid a visit to Fort and Point Nepean to commemorate

firing the First Shot in World War 1.

silhouette_0148There was oodles of media in tow to cover the event.

We were told that it was to be reported internationally,

but not sure if this occurred.

silhouette_0114I would like to think that these ‘Diggers‘ are honouring the men who fought in all wars

and praying that it never happens again.
